Research on Force Feedback-Based Tool Operation in Virtual Assembly
To verify the accessibility and workspace of tool operation in virtual assembly system, this paper presented a tool-part operation method based on force feedback. According to characters of common tool-part operations, standard fastening tools and parts were modeled using features and parameters at initial stage. Then operator was enabled to conduct different kinds of fastening and unfastening operations in virtual assembly system by three steps namely identification, interactive positioning and operation. With feedback force, the operator can feel corresponding motion constraints of tool during virtual fastening and unfastening operation, so the immersion of virtual assembly operation is promoted.
